Former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir has slammed Arvind Kejriwal and the authorities after tragic fire at hotel Arpit Palace in Karol Bagh claimed lives of 17 people. He took to Twitter after the city government announced Rs 5 lakh as compensation for families of deceased souls.

“Surely a human life is worth much more than INR 5 lakh Arvind Kejriwal. It underlines what our machinery thinks about us, d common man. Compensation is merely a bandaid on an oozing wound whereas Delhi needs surgeries and it should begin with a systemic overhaul.”

He slammed the regulators and even claimed the hotel is near Gautam Gambhir Foundation’s office and was aware about the rules and regulations being flouted for commercial interests.

This is not the first time, Gambhir has taken on Delhi Chief Minister. However, his rant didn’t go down well with Twitterati, who lambasted him for unnecessarily blaming Kejriwal instead of BJP governed MCD.

Here are some of the tweets:
